CUADRA MARTINEZ, David. Teorías subjetivas en docentes de una escuela de bajo rendimiento, sobre la enseñanza y el aprendizaje del alumno. RMIE [online]. 2009, vol.14, n.42, pp. 939-967. ISSN 1405-6666.
This article presents an interpretative descriptive study of teachers' subjective theories on teaching and student learning in a school with low performance. Qualitative methodology was employed for the study and work was carried out with six fourthgrade teachers from a municipal elementary school in the region of Atacama, Chile. The main findings on teaching/learning reveal simple subjective theories, with a structure of arguments based on variables that are felt to be predominantly uncontrollable, associated to a degree with pedagogical practices that could lead to low results. The discussion presents a comprehensive framework of schools with low effectiveness, positioning the teacher's thinking as a necessary variable for understanding results.
